It said that Sharma, the Special Representative of the Government of India for the Dialogue in Jammu and Kashmir, who is currently visiting the State and meeting representatives of different sections of society, student organizations, political parties, social and religious groups etc, informed Vohra about his talks with various individuals and groups in the Valley and the major concerns which had been voiced by those he had met on his first visit to Kashmir.
